Dele Sosimi

E Go Betta

Wah Wah 45s

Released: 11th September 2015 | 2 track afrobeat single

Wah Wah 45s are proud to present the new single from an Afrobeat legend!

E Go Betta is the third single to be taken from Dele Sosimi's latest LP You No Fit Touch Am. The album has received huge praise from Okay Africa, Clash Magazine and Songlines, and radio support from stations as diverse as Rinse FM and BBC 6Music. This single is a straight up dance floor monster, made even more foot friendly by a very cunning re-edit courtesy of rising star O'Flynn (Blip Recordings).

Born in Hackney, East London, but soon to return to his parents' native Nigeria at the age of four, Dele Sosimi was schooled and raised in Fela Anikulapo Kuti's shadow at the height of early 70s afrobeat. Having been chosen by Fela to join his band at somewhat of a tender age, he was still a young man when sharing Fela's Glastonbury stage in 1984, and became both Musical Director for both Fela's Egypt 80 and Femi Kuti's Positive Force.

After Fela's passing in 1997, Dele went on to concentrate on his own solo career and, with diligent patience, carved out his own Afrobeat crown. In London, where he now resides, his Afrobeat Vibration all-nighters are charged with his passion, labours and his unrelenting spirit and deliver Fela classics alongside his own compositions from his first two studio albums, Turbulent Times, and Identity.

London's new Afrobeat king is here to party and you're all welcome to join in!
